Mero galaxy kaathaa paareI've been residing there for quite a few years now, but I don't think I have actually "seen" the Milky Way. It's not easy, what with the visual pollution around and the fact that I mostly stay indoors and sleep during show time.
But it was quite a show, according to the ancients. A band of pearly white across the sky is, if you think about it, on par with a glorious sunrise on the horizon. So it is a pity that I've only seen the low-resolution bits of stars independently winking back. It's almost a "ek chiDiyaa, anek chiDiyaa" fable.
Friends who are into astronomy and do "stargazing" inform me that the Akashganga can be seen, if you can get away from all of Edison's devil progeny. One could die without having ever gazed up and seen the light - quite a scary prospect.
